At least seven people were wounded, including an infant, by a rocket attack on central Israel from the Gaza Strip.

An early morning rocket from the Gaza Strip struck a house in central Israel on Monday, wounding seven people, including two children and an infant.

The sounds of air raid sirens woke up the residents of the residential Sharon area, northeast of Tel Aviv, sending them scurrying to bomb shelters, Associated Press reported. A strong sound of an explosion followed.

The Magen David Adom rescue service said it was treating seven people, including two women who were moderately wounded. The others, including two children and an infant, had minor wounds.
